After one of Curtis Walker's buddies was shot outside of a Skyway apartment complex, the 35-year-old ex-con went looking for revenge. He thought he'd found it when he spotted a kid in a blue coat standing outside of a 7-Eleven. Instead, what he actually found was an innocent victim, 12-year-old Alajaway Brown, whom he allegedly shot and killed on April 29.

Cops say Alajawan Brown was a victim of mistaken identity.
After shooting Brown, Walker got into a black Cadillac driven by a friend. He told the friend that he'd shot the boy out of retaliation. Then the two got into an accident just a couple blocks later.

After Walker fled the scene, police traced the Cadillac's license and found it was registered under Walker's wife's name. Later, a witness spotted Walker dumping something in a field. When cops showed up they recovered three guns, including the .38 revolver ballistics later tied to the Brown shooting.

Walker later that told his father the killing was "on the Bloods," a reference to his gang. He has a number of past convictions for assault and gun violations and is currently being held on $5 million bail for the charge of first-degree murder.
